Study: Microbiome Disruption May Have Key Role in ARDS, Sepsis

2016 18 Jul

Researchers from the University of Michigan (U-M) Medical School have found culture-independent evidence that the lung microbiome is enriched with gut bacteria, both in a murine model of sepsis and in patients with ARDS. In more severely critically ill patients, lung bacteria were more outnumbered by the misplaced gut bacteria. The researchers conclude... Read more

Targeting Gut Bacteria May Help Burn and Trauma Patients

2015 09 Jul

A new study published in PLOS ONE shows that burn injuries could trigger dramatic changes in the 100 trillion bacteria inside the gastrointestinal tract. Researchers found a huge increase in Enterobacteriaceae, a family of potentially harmful bacteria, in patients who had suffered severe burns. There was a corresponding decrease in beneficial bacteria... Read more
